<title>FSFE invites to track down advertising for non-free software
on governmental websites</title>
<h1>FSFE invites to track down advertising for non-free software on
governmental websites</h1>
<p newsteaser="yes">The Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE) is
launching a campaign to sensibilize the public to the fact that government
websites are advertising for proprietary software, each time that they
redirect you to a downloading interface for a non-free PDFreader while
you have to read a PDF file.</p>
<p>Launched by the Fellowship of FSFE, <a href="http://pdfreaders.org/">pdfreaders.org</a>
is a site providing information about Free Software PDF readers for all
major operating systems. It clearly shows that there are many programs to
read and write PDF documents. Grounding on the conviction that governments
should not advertise for one private product, in this case a non-free PDF
reader presented as the only possibility to read PDF documents when there
are several alternatives. By doing so, governmental institutions give
indeed an economical advantage to the advertised product over its competitors. </p>
<p>FSFE invites everybody to search through governmental websites for advertising
and to <a href="/campaigns/pdfreaders/pdfreaders.en.html">notify them</a>
to the FSFE.<!-- We also invite you to <a href="www.fsfe.org/campaigns/pdfreaders/petition.html">sign the petition</a> for advertisment-free governmental websites.--></p>
<p>This collection of governmental URL will take place from September,
13th to October 17th 2010. It takes the form of a contest in which people
notifying the most advertisements will recieve a price at the end of October.
<!-- The second phase of the campaign will then consist in writing to the
pointed institutions to try to explain them FSFE's point and to make them
correct their assertions on their websites. --></p>
<p>We hope to see you soon on our hunter list</p>
